Dear IEEE Young Professionals,
Happy New Year!
2015 was a record breaking year for the IEEE Young Professionals publication and I would like to thank you all for all of your contributions. In 2015 we officially re-branded our publication from GOLDRush to IMPACT by IEEE Young Professionals.
In 2015 we published over 70 unique articles and we grew our reach via social media to beyond 11,000 followers. We received over 100,000 individual views and more than 5,000 comments/likes through our social media. We covered stories based on geographic location to highlight wonderful work our young professional members are undertaking in their respective sections. We covered IEEE volunteers involved in major global events such as the earthquakes in Nepal and the war in Iraq. Our editors interviewed world experts and provided tech reviews of cutting edge research and development. We profiled over a dozen IEEE members who have made big impact through their volunteer and leadership.
Listed below are a few of our high impact articles.
2016 and beyond
In 2016 we commence a new chapter in our publication evolution. We have officially incorporated the IMPACT by IEEE Young Professional publication into the brand new IEEE Young Professionals website. From now on you will be able to read all the wonderful stories through http://yp.ieee.org/impact/
